DescriptionPewsey Vale Riding Centre is one of the largest riding centres in Wiltshire with stabling for over 90 horses. Our facilities include a large indoor school, two outdoor menage, lecture room, shower facilities and on site accommodation, all of which is situated in the Pewsey Vale below the Alton Barnes White Horse. An area of outstanding natural beauty through which we have direct access to ride with no road work!
We have approximately 100 horses and ponies in our centre, all of which have been carefully selected to be safe and sensible. They vary from horses/ponies, cobs/thoroughbreds, and slow/fast. We are able to cater for every riding ability and requirement.
We like to think that we can accommodate everyone – our strong team of 20 staff have been selected to instruct and nurture to the highest possible standard. Our team’s teaching experience extends throughout all areas of riding, from the ‘dodgy rising trot’ to their first collected canter!
Few riding centres can be so ideally suited to riding totally off road. Our riding trails have been blessed with the finest views and monuments in Wiltshire. The Ridgeway, Wansdyke, and Silbury Hill coupled with the view of the Avebury Stones, and Kennett Long Barrow are simply breathtaking. Our trail riding has a marvellous way of enabling you to escape from reality, even if just for an hour! Our safe horses and professional staff can take you on a journey through miles of unspoilt countryside. Whether a wild winter’s day or a lazy summer’s afternoon we will be more than happy to arrange your day.
If you are looking for trail rides that are more challenging, then check out our Long Distance page – not for the faint hearted!
If Long Distance is your thing then you are on the right track! It has taken PVRC months of planning, organising, and treking (on foot) to finally achieve the ultimate in long distance riding for the middle counties. We are very pleased to have created the rides that can take us north to the top of the Ridgeway, or south to the sea and a variety of alternate hacking in the middle. These rides have been tried and tested and are fabulous. They can be escorted by us, using our horses, or maybe you’d like to bring your own! We pride ourselves in not just the organisation of the hacks but the back up service – lost shoes, lame horses, or maybe you’ve just had enough!! Our staff are there to help.
Corporate days, pony clubs, riding clubs, charity rides, or just a group of friends wanting to have some fun!! We are able to offer any level of service you require – help can be minimal or we can arrange and escort the whole hack for you – the decision is yours. Remember that we have already completed these rides and they are wonderful!
Some of the packages that we have already arranged:
